Washout has neighbors wondering

Following a spring of flooding, the Little Missouri River has decided to take an unexpected change of course.

An oxbow in the river on land owned by Harold Hugelen and Badlands Ministries has been cut off by erosion that has created a new about 100-yard channel in the river, Hugelen said.

The channel appears to have originated where the Southwest Water Pipeline crosses under the river, Hugelen said.
